Highland Win The RBS Bowl

By Peter Martin, 19th Apr 2014

Highland started with the game they have played all season with the forwards winning quick ball to be spun out wide. It took only 2 minutes for Darren Macleod to score in the corner to be converted by Scott Fraser.

Highland were dominant for most of the first-half that saw a second try from Tam Magowan again converted by Fraser. The score could have been much more as Fraser missed a penalty and MacLeod had a second try disallowed for a final pass being forward.

In the second-half although it was Highland who started better with a nice try from Richard Sim for 19-0, Glenrothes battled back. They looked to be making a fight back with a try from Cammie Goodall converted by Stuart Gray for 19-7.

However Highland stamped their authority on the game with a fourth try from James Taylor after a missed penalty by Fraser, although he got the conversion for 26-7.

With only ten minutes remaining it looked out of Glenrothes's reach yet they wanted something out of the game and scored a second unconverted try from Daryl Wallender for 26-12.

Highland finished in charge and were unlucky to have a fifth try by David Titterington scratched for crossing.

A great win for Highland and the icing on the cake was Rory Cross being awarded the RBS man of the match trophy as selected by Scotland's Lee Jones.
